Week Fantastique Cruise: 7 - nights in November 2012.

Have a week fantastique sailing some idyllic islands in the Pacific. Leave Brisbane and switch to French culture in Noumea. Enjoy the traditional French Boulangeries, Cafes and restaurants or explore the town on Le Petit Train. Many of the sights are quite a distance apart and tours by motor trike, fun car, bike or helicopter offer the best way to see the city. Some great tours are on offer outside of the city, 4WD in the bush, hiking Mount Koghis, Kayaking the Dumbea Rive. Lifou has one of the most diverse landscapes in the South Pacific, from limestone caves to white beaches and coral reefs teeming with brightly coloured marine life. You'll stand awestruck in front of all of its breathtakingly beautiful views: the northern coast of the island is made up of high, steep cliffs, whilst the southern side has pristine white sand beaches with stunning turquoise waters. The substantial dock and port area of Port Vila overlooks a natural harbour. There are beautiful coastal views of the city with its clusters of houses and small scale resorts nestled amongst tropical vegetation makes an attractive scene. The harbour is quite active with fishing boats, yachts and speedboats passing between the various nearby islands. Upon arrival into Port Vila you will have the opportunity to visit many of the local market stalls set up for each ships call into this port.

About the Pacific Dawn
